The TV show might be over, but books don’t die that easily. George R R Martin is still be working on the remaining books in his A Song Of Ice And Fire series, but The Folio Society are giving fans a chance to enjoy the existing books anew, in beautifully bound and illustrated editions.
The new illustrations, by Jonathan Burton, will give readers the chance to shake off their mental images of the TV show and revisit the books with fresh eyes, and a new introduction by Joe Abercrombie will explore the series’ impact on the fantasy genre. And for those fans of the show who still haven’t got around to reading the source material, it’s the perfect chance to delve into a far richer take on Westeros than the show had room to bring to life.
The Folio Society are beginning with a two-volume edition of A Game Of Thrones, with the other books in the series set to follow. This edition includes a wealth of supporting material, including a fold-out map and family trees.
The Folio Society’s edition of George R R Martin’s A Game Of Thrones is available exclusively from www.foliosociety.com.
